Patterson Media: Who are we?
Our founder, Chris Patterson, is a Georgia native, a two-time Iraq War Veteran and a lifelong automotive enthusiast. After honorably serving a 6-year stint in the U.S. Army, Chris returned to his hometown of Dalton, Georgia to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication. In 2017, he would again return to the Middle-East, this time as a civilian working for Veteran-nonprofit United Services Organization, simply known by most as the U.S.O. (of Bob Hope fame). Upon returning again to Georgia in 2018, Chris began pursuing his passions in social media marketing, content creation, blogging and Jeeping.
Chris’s work has taken him across the United States. From our home in the greater-Chattanooga area, he connects with Jeep owners and enthusiasts to document the history of the Jeep brand and to tell the story of those who hold in high regard the mighty Jeep; thus, the birth of Patterson Media Company.
Patterson Media Company has actively participated in high profile events such as the Barrett Jackson auctions and King of the Hammers off-road race. You can find examples of Chris’s work both on this website, as well as on our social media accounts.
